Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The SmallBall Nation of Anti-Goatsack is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Billy with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, soft-spoken computers, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 27.581 billion Anti-Goatsackians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Keely. Income tax is unheard of.

The all-consuming Anti-Goatsackian economy, worth a remarkable 3,725 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Book Publishing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 135,077 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations, nude art is becoming wildly popular, internet service is too costly for normal people to purchase, and same-sex marriages are increasingly common. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Anti-Goatsack's national animal is the Beaner, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Anti-Goatsack is ranked 1,260th in the world and 2nd in Smallballia for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 31,804.12 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
